VIEWFINDER

13 september , 2013

VIEWFINDER is a stop motion film made with screenshots of Google Street Image. The film lasts 12 minutes and consists of more than 1800 images of 196 steel construction bridges in the USA. VIEWFINDER is about the meeting of camera and bridge and how they and their movements, sometimes parallel, sometimes in opposition, frame the landscape which surrounds them.

The film has been selected for Incubate open film festival 2013
Information about the film program can be found here: http://incubate.org/2013/54/openfilm

During Unseen Book market Amsterdam I present a DVD with a special edition of VIEWFINDER. With more images and bridges in a endless loop. You find me at the table of ABC. Information: http://www.unseenamsterdam.com/events/171

Working on a new project about bridges. I remember this film by Richard Serra.

“…Railroad Turnbridge is about the meeting of machine and machine [camera and bridge] and how they and their movements, sometimes parallel, sometimes in opposition, frame the landscape which surrounds them. A shot of the landscape seen through the rectangles of the bridge’s opening, the bridge [becomes], in movement, a giant extension of the camera viewfinder…” Amy Taubin, Soho News

(1976, 19 mins, Silent, B&W, 16mm)
